HSt Rst 33I/4 — bragningi ‘the ruler’

Þengill þróttarstrǫngum
þeim bauð Kristr af heimi
byrtjalds (beztu heilli)
bragningi (goð fagni).
Ygglaust alla þiggi
eljunfimr á himnum
Óláfr œzta sælu
ítrbóls með gram sólar.

Kristr, þengill byrtjalds, bauð þróttarstrǫngum bragningi af þeim heimi; goð fagni beztu heilli. Eljunfimr Óláfr þiggi ygglaust alla œzta sælu á himnum með gram ítrbóls sólar.

Christ, the prince of the wind-tent [SKY/HEAVEN > = God (= Christ)], invited the ruler strong in valour out of the world; may God receive [him] with the highest grace. May the vigorous Óláfr receive without fear all the highest bliss in the heavens with the lord of the splendid abode of the sun [SKY/HEAVEN > = God].
